This joint thematic review is the first time that potential examples of good practice in Learning, Skills and Employability identified through the inspection programme or put forward by establishments have been evaluated and described in detail. It emphasises the fact that inspection is as much about sharing good practice where it is found as it is about identifying where improvement is required. Learning and developing new skills is a vital element of reducing offending behaviour, promoting rehabilitation and preparing prisoners for life outwith prison on release. We encourage establishments to review their practices and adopt models that will meet the needs of their prisoners.
